Svetla Archard     Advanced Pilates Instructor & Personal Trainer level 4


I was born in Bulgaria. My life changed at the age of 7 when my father took me to a special school famed for training Olympic gymnasts. I was trained by the Head Coach and, as we lived behind the Iron Curtain at the time, I was trained in Russian techniques. Even now these are still kept secret from athletes in the West.  This training meant I became good enough to represent Bulgaria at National Level and at the prestigious Balkan Championships.
But sadly a serious ankle injury ended my gymnastics career at a young age. But then I discovered the power of Pilates and its amazing power to help people heal and rehabilitate from injury.  My life changed again.  I decided to become a Pilates Instructor!

I am highly qualified and have two degrees in  firstly, Advanced Personal Training and also in Advanced Pilates.
I trained at the prestigious Bulgarian National Fitness Academy  and was taught by the world renowned  Master Yoga and Pilates Teacher, Irina Buchvarova. 

I began my career as a Personal Trainer. Soon I realized I had a talent for seeing what my clients need and how I can help them achieve their goals.

I enjoy seeing them experience physical and emotional breakthroughs during my classes and workshops.

As a result, I decided to create a program based on Pilates. This has been very helpful, particularly for people with different injuries and people with disabilities.


In 2008 I moved to the UK and started work as Personal Trainer, designing special programs for individual needs and body type, as well as giving private Pilates lessons in my client’s homes.
As my business grew more and more successful, I started running Pilates classes and workshops in Newport and other towns across south Wales.

My classes have been recognized by official bodies in Wales and I am sponsored by Sport Wales.

Since  2012, I have been also been the Conditional Trainer for Flip N Twist Gymnastics in Newport

The main reason I instruct is to bring joy and spirit to my clients and to encourage them  to embrace Pilates as a lifestyle. I hope this inspires them to achieve goals, and set new goals! Pilates enhances and promotes healthy living, which can only be of benefit to the whole community!!
